OOh yes maybe - I could do this I think... will check babysitting situation

KristinaM Tue 25-Feb-14 12:13:52

C'mon Kew , you have 8 weeks to get a babysitter. How hard can it be? hmm

Hels20 Tue 25-Feb-14 13:08:08

Ah, why de yer all av te live doon sooth?


OneOfOurLilkasIsMissing Tue 25-Feb-14 14:02:18

London should be picked up and transplanted somewhere more in the middle in the country, it would just be better for everyone

Except people wanting a quicker connection from London to Paris I guess...

Inthebeginning Tue 25-Feb-14 14:09:53

I agree!

I thin midlands/northern contingency should have a meet up too smile

PheasantPlucker Tue 25-Feb-14 16:11:56

That's not your usual date! Let me check the calendar, I'd love to if I am able to

namechangesforthehardstuff Tue 25-Feb-14 19:48:06

Um I'm in range smile But I don't go to panel till just after then so will I feel like a big imposter? grin

Italiangreyhound Tue 25-Feb-14 20:02:09

If I can I will! PM me with the time!!

excitedmamma Tue 25-Feb-14 21:07:45

oh..I'd be up for a Northern meetup.. flatcaps at the ready?

OneOfOurLilkasIsMissing Tue 25-Feb-14 21:08:25

That would be good Inthebeginning smile

I can't make promises, it would have to be a weekend obviously, but I find it hard to find people who will look after both DS and DD2 (I still can't leave her at home for more than an hour on her own, and it has to be someone she knows quite well). But if it was a date i could find someone, and it was an achievable distance from where I am, it would be good smile

Whereabouts (generally not specifically obviously) are our midlands/northern adopters? I'm in Tyne and Wear

Italiangreyhound Tue 25-Feb-14 21:25:14

Any Birmingham meet up people???

Inthebeginning Tue 25-Feb-14 21:36:39

I'm very near to Birmingham. I can only do weekends really too.

Kewcumber Tue 25-Feb-14 22:06:45

Can I just very politely point out that... Kristina does NOT live "doon Sooth" you loons !

OneOfOurLilkasIsMissing Tue 25-Feb-14 22:16:28

I forgot that. I did know. I'm a loon grin

Either way, I can't get to London to see you either-southerners-or-intrepid-long-distance-travellers sad

Meita Wed 26-Feb-14 09:09:03

I would be quite keen to meet some adopters in general, and peeps from this board in particular! London is good for me.

Like Namechanges, I would be pre-approval-panel… just 10 days or so pre-approval-panel but still.

RebeccaMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 26-Feb-14 13:53:54

The OP has been in touch and we've corrected the thread title for you now.

Devora Wed 26-Feb-14 18:27:21

Just try keeping me away!

I'd love to see any and all Imposters. Enjoy your last moments before you become hardened old hags like us grin
